Road-Work-Ahead

Summer Road Work
Your Edgewood tax dollars at work! Our contracted partner, Pierce County Public Works, has begun our annual chip seal program, and work will resume Monday through Thursday as weather permits. Signs are being placed along the roads stating when work is slated to begin. Expect delays during work hours. For a map of this year's chip seal roads, click here (2020 is bright red).

Vegetation maintenance along Meridian Ave E (SR 161) between 36th St E and the south city limit (railroad crossing) was completed this week. Thank you for your patience!


Guardrail Repair

The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) performed guardrail and shoulder repair work on southbound Meridian Ave E (SR-161) between 36th St E and Dechaux Road on Wednesday, March 11th. Additional work pending warmer weather and crew availability. Expect delays during work hours.

School Zone Cameras
Speed enforcement cameras are installed at six locations: 24th St E near Northwood Elementary (eastbound only), 24th Street East at Edgemont Junior High (eastbound and westbound), and Hedden Elementary (8th Street East eastbound and westbound, and 114th Avenue East southbound).  Speed limits are photo-enforced at the existing flashing beacon locations when flashing. Be advised these cameras have been deactivated during the statewide school shutdown. Please contact the Edgewood Police Department with any questions.
